Not much to show off !

Greetings !  I had big plans again this week ; but , life got in the way again ! Babysitting the grandpeeps
and a sick husband and I'm still getting over a sinus thing ! That's my excuses !!

I did get some Blocks done this week for a quilt a long @ http://www.flickr.com/groups/sewhappyquilt/pool/with/6689827823/
  It's 2 weeks of blocks , but I finished the 1st set on Monday , the day before the new ones were
posted-- why hurry and get them done ahead of time ????   You can see them on my flickr page :


I did cut out a GIANT VINTAGE STAR quilt that I have ready to work on today !! yippee  . Found the pattern here :   http://www.amylouwhosews.com/2012/01/sew-tell-v313-giant-vintage-star.html

On both of these projects , I have finally cut into my coveted Kate Spain Central Park fabric !! I have
drooled over it and petted it many times and decided it was time to USE IT !!!
